LS level for watchman goby?

I got a watchman goby this weekend. And notice it starting digging hole everywhere lol kind of funny to watch. I only got 1' LS and I read they like a deeper layer.

So the question is will my 1' deep sand enough for him?

If not can I just go buy more LS and add on top of the current layer?

I think it should be enough but if he is anything like my diamond goby you will end up with spots that are almost bare because he will pile the sand up around his favorite hole.

Mine actually found all the left over Crushed coral I had in the tank and made a pile of it on one of my live rocks. This is probably the coolest fish I have to watch and he found all the CC I missed

Thank you. But to my second question above, if i do want to make it deeper can I just add a 1 or 2 on top of my current bed? Or do I need to take everything out and mix all the sand up first?

I would add it in stages, adding no mor than a 1/2" on top of an established bed per week. You don't want to bury your beneficial bacteria creating a die off.
